Project Timeline

Phase 1 | Knowledge

In phase one, we focused mainly on gaining and sharing knowledge about architectural recovery and to design possible solutions under the guidance of experts and specialists from various disciplines. For this, we organised a workshop week from 20 – 24 March. 

The outcome of this workshop week were 60 students designing 12 concept designs, under the guidance of many lecturers, experts and firms.

Phase 2 | The Design

In phase two, we are working on the design. It’s essential to connect and align with many different stakeholder in order to fully understand the challenges they are facing. Especially the needs of local inhabitants should be taken into account when designing new homes. The design team is developing modular, long-term housing solutions by implementing local materials, flexibility and culture into the design. To conclude this phase, in September 2023, a full scale prototype will be built and tested at Delft University of Technology. (In progress)

Phase 3 | The Construction

In phase three, the prototype will be moved to Hatay. Once the prototype has been approved, it will be transported to the villages. The prototype will be used as an example for upcoming sites. The houses will be built in collaboration with local construction firms and builders. This phase will be concluded when the prototype can be used as a stamp which can be implemented in the same village, but also in other villages surrounding Antakya, Hatay.
